DJ Wavy‘s smooth track exudes thoughts of curiosity and confusion as he begins to take notice people he’s surrounded by “stealing his wave.” The instrumental is smoother than oceans and does an excellent job recognizing itself as having this quality; the way Wavy crawls across the beat, balancing sing-song autotune and a much more aggressive flow in the last verse, greatly captures the vibe. The piano dances as Wavy goes on about how his success and ambition are attracting attention from people he’s wary of.
Painting and catering to a vibe has easily been a facet of his skill set that’s been present throughout DJ Wavy’s career, having been renowned at Webster Hall for his sets at “House Party.” There he went toe to toe with elites such as Just Blaze and Funkmaster Flex, and still held his own in the professional sphere. Being able to get a large crowd pumped, while doing so effortlessly in an environment with some of hip-hop’s best, shows itself on “Steal My Wave.”
RESPECT. got a hold of Wavy and asked him questions surrounding his DJ career, his influences outside of music, and motivation.
